Multiple Users Pulling from one set of parts

I have multiple Solidworks users using the same parts for their assemblies.  All is fine until it becomes necessary to edit these parts.  As an example, Users 1 and 2 have  assemblies that are bringing in a part, A, which is made using the design table feature.  If User 1 has to add a new part to the design table of part A, he cannot because the file is read only. User 1 cannot save Part A until User 2 has closed the Assembly which references it.  Is it possible to get Solidworks to save the new part without having User 2 close the program?
